Gov't sends me information on when to expect more information?

This $600.00 steal from the rich give to the poor bullshit is getting worse. Did anybody else receive a letter saying that they will send you another letter closer to when we receive our rebate checks?

Between postage, ink, and paper, that had to cost some mega bucks to send out.

I had the exact same thoughts. Instead of sending that letter, they could have used the time & resources to send a fatter check earlier...... Not that I think this is going to stimulate much. The government will probably just find a way to tax this as income next year and break that check in half.

Yup, thought the same thing, how much would've been save by not sending this crap

they don't want you to forget it's coming, or those who would run out and spend that extra money today to "stimulate" now:tonka:

Typical goverment answer:

Q. Why is IRS sending out two notices on the stimulus payments?

A. The first notice will be general in nature, informing the recipient the IRS is preparing to disburse payments beginning in May. The second notice will be more specific, informing the recipient how much to expect in the payment and when it should arrive.

Can't vouch for the website od the dollar amount quoted, but this is a good little read. Will look further to see if the letters we all got really cost $41.8 Million.

Yep, $42,000,000.00 seems like the magic number. Thinking someone has been stimulated by this plan already.

It gets worse.

I had to call the IRS about something and they have 3-4 minute long message on their phone system that basically says "quit calling us asking when you'll get your stimulus money and how much you'll get" before you even get to the menu to select which option you want to be on hold for...

The government will just get mine back to help pay off my taxes from this year.

Working as a contractor and paying a single business tax is bs.
